The chest radiograph revealed complete collapse of the right lung and blunting of right costophrenic angle. Massive blood and blood clots were drained after chest tube insertion.
A chest radiograph indicated diffuse reticulonodular infiltrates with consolidations at the right costophrenic angle and in the retrocardiac space.
X-ray chest revealed a blunted right costophrenic angle suggestive of right-sided pleural effusion.(Ultrasound abdomen revealed liver measure approximately.
Right tracheal deviation, bilateral apical fibrotic areas, increment in bilateral reticular trails, and blunting in bilateral costophrenic angle were seen on chest X-ray and thorax computerized tomography [Figure 1].
Pleural effusion is identified on chest radiography when it causes blunting of the normally sharp costophrenic angle. Patients with pneumothorax can also present with chest pain and acute shortness of breath.
The estimation of the volume of effusion is performed using the qualitative approach: (1) minimal, if an effusion is seen within the costophrenic angle; (2) small, if the effusion is over the costophrenic angle but still within a one-probe range; (3) moderate, if the effusion is greater than a one-probe range but within a two-probe range; and (4) large or massive, if the effusion is bigger than a two-probe range [6].
Most frequently, the cyst is found in the right costophrenic angle but may also be found elsewhere in the mediastinum [4, 8].

A computed tomography angiography (Figure 1) found no PE but revealed an ovoid 3.2 x 2.2 cm costophrenic angle mass of the right lower lung lobe with no evidence of hilar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy.
